Foreign object in air intake


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

This is really embarrassing, but I was cleaning my car's EGR valve over the weekend using Wynn's EGR valve cleaner spray, as I do regularly. However, this time, the plastic straw supplied with the spray shot out and went into my car's air intake! I tried to retrieve it but there was no sign of it. At this point, I thought I'd killed my car. I carried on with the cleaning anyway and followed the process (let the car idle, drive for 5 miles under 3,00rpm) and the car seems fine...

Silly question, but should I be concerned? Has anyone else done this and if so, what was the outcome?

Thanks for reading
